'Thuppakki' row resolved; controversial scenes to be deleted

South star Vijay’s movie Thuppakki may have opened well at box office, but it has apparently hurt the sentiments of some in the Muslim community. Heeding the protests, the makers of the film have agreed to delete the ‘objectionable’ scenes.



In the middle of the rave reviews and good box office opening, director A. R. Murugadoss, superstar Vijay and producer Thaanu were shocked to see the protests by a federation of 24 Muslim organizations that demanded the removal of some scenes and dialogues they considered offensive.

The protests sent the Thuppakki team into a huddle and it was unanimously decided to axe the controversial portions from the film.

A press conference was held to announce this decision and the film’s producer Thaanu said: “We did not want to hurt anyone’s sentiment. We regret if it had offended the Muslim community. We also consent to remove some of the controversial scenes which were objected to by few Muslim organizations. This will be done in one or two days’ time from all the prints of Thuppakki”.

Director A. R. Murugadoss was also profusely apologetic.

To further placate the Muslim community, superstar Vijay’s father SA Chandrashekar stepped into the fray and said: “Vijay would never act in a film which would offend anyone’s feelings. I promise that Vijay will act as a Muslim character in one of his future films”.

The matter seems resolved for now and the Muslim organizations have withdrawn their protest.
